I think that warrants a bit of discussion. Is the chip used on an
x86 system (no devicetree), and is there reason to believe that the
default watchdog timeout is not good enough until the watchdog application
starts and can configure it to a different value ?

This is also a bit more complicated since gpio pin 0 can be a valid gpio
pin number, so you'd have to explicitly state "don't use gpio" in the
platform data.
